AnonApplicant38419 Posted October 10, 2015 Share Posted October 10, 2015 Hi everyone! I'm currently a junior at a large research university with a major in English (film concentration), with minors in Media Studies in Documentary Studies.I've been interning this semester at my school's art museum and I've really been enjoying the work. I've always been passionate about art and art history, and pursuing a specialized degree while doing research and writing sounds like something that really suits my interests. Whether it be through working in a museum or at a school, I want to be involved in the academic world after graduation.That being said, I was wondering if a PhD in art history was a viable option for me, especially without an undergraduate degree in art history. And on top of that, most of my research and interests in the art world revolve around documentary/experimental film and photography, which I feel like isn't something that is often emphasized in a lot of art history programs. It seems that the field I'm looking into is a small subset of modern and contemporary art, which is an oversaturated field as is. I would also prefer not to pursue a MA (I've been fortunate enough to receive enough financial aid to pursue a BA debt free, and I would really like to keep it that way).Thanks so much in advance!
